    Have you tried going to 192.168.1.1? (Linksys or Netgear. Dunno about Airport and others.) Once you're in your router settings, port forwarding shouldn't be too hard to find...

    If you're talking about Firewall, go to System Preferences > Sharing > Firewall > New...

    what router do you have? you usually go in and set up "port forwarding".

    if no router then disable any firewall software, like the macos firewall that Dkwan mentioned.

    also if you dont have a router: ISPs often ban default ports for these programs, go into az and look for a setting for the listen port, change it to a high number like 60001 save and restart.

    I have a DLink VPN router. But its in my garage in a cable box whihc connects to all the cat9 ports in the house. I dont use airport, but im confused whether or not i still need to open another port..
    I did make new folder wiht a port and i named it Azureus.

    :hs: you've got to be kidding.


    Anyway google is usually a good place to start, I found this gem: http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm

    choose your router, then choose azureus & you will get a guide.

    You need to configure your router to accept connections from the internet on a port, and direct those connections to your computer.

    also use a manual ip address for the computer you are forwarding the ports to. I can get 1MB download speeds with Azureus and port forwarding.
